    Matte Wash

    I am trying to make a matte wash with oxide for low firing. I tried a GB wash but it became glossy when firing. Any ideas or recipes ? Just oxide with water ? Gum ?

    Fusing Alumina To Porcelain

    Hi guys! Recently I asked about a silicone ring inside a mug and received a lot of good feedback. As a result I decided to ditch the silicone and attach an aluminum oxide piece to the mug instead. I have attached a picture of the test results. It is so close! The alumina sticks well, but small cracks will be formed on the glazing. Do you know of any tricks to minimize cracking? The parts were fired to 1260C with high temp. glazing. -Harry
  3. Hi all, I'm just in love with this look and wonder how it's achieved: with underglaze over a white glaze? dipping a powdered (undiluted) mason stain over the wet white glaze? with drops of water on underglaze applied over wet white glaze? a cobalt oxide wash? Anyone?? Thanks!
  4. Jenny Mendes Workshop Awakening the Possibilities: Terra Cotta Jungle WS05 – Saturday & Sunday, 10-4pm, June 11 & 12 2016 Fee: $200 member/$225 non-member This hands-on, two day workshop is for anyone who wants to awaken the possibilities in their ceramic work through the imaginative use of color decoration. Jenny will demonstrate various vibrant ways to approach the surface as a painter, by means of a palette of terra sigillatas, underglaze, washes and oxides. Simple hand-built forms and tiles will serve as your canvas. She will share her “low tech method†of making terra sigillata. The emphasis will be on helping participants relax so they can play with color, texture and imagery on the surface of their work. A willingness to have fun and embrace the deliberate awkwardness of finding oneself in unknown territory is the only prerequisite! All levels welcome. Jenny Mendes earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 1982, and has been a full time studio artist since 1994. Jenny is an internationally recognized ceramic artist working primarily with clay to create hand-built and decorated ceramics. She exhibits her ceramic artwork nationally at galleries and juried shows. Since completing a three-year residency at the Penland School of Crafts in 2007, she has completed additional short-term residencies in France, Slovenia, Macedonia, and the US. She currently resides in Ohio, teaches an occasional workshop, and gardens for pleasure. Artist Statement Using clay as my primary material, I have found an entry way into my subconscious. I work intuitively with a palate comprised of many things. First I create a structure which I overlay with painted patterns of emotional experience, sensory based memories, cellular formations, and other discoveries. Working within a human/animal narrative, I engage in a dialogue that witnesses and reflects an invitation into my world.

  5. The other week, I was explaining to an art center member about glaze bases being comprised of glass formers, stabilizers, and fluxes. I also gave some examples of the 3 different kinds of oxides from those RO/R2O, R2O3, and RO2 groups. She asked me why the fluxes have only one oxygen atom. I couldn't answer her question but am curious myself.
  6. I want to make a thicker iron oxide for brushing onto my pieces. First off its a complete mess when mixed with water. Second all the iron particles end up at the bottom unless you are continually stirring which still makes for an inconsistent tone and tint of the application. What is the general rule for getting suspension of particles in a water based stain / glaze / etc... a frit? I'm firing at cone 6 always and cone 04 for bisque. The application will be on bisqueware not greenware.

    Working With Pure Pigments

    I have a considerable collection of pure earth, ochre and oxide pigments and oxides which I purchased for my encaustic medium via http://www.earthpigments.com. I would like to better understand how I can use these in the creation of stains and engobes. Do any of you do this? Might you have recipes or general rules of thumb for me? I see a lot online about "ceramic pigments" but I am pretty sure these are formulated, not pure. I'll happily text the options, but would love to hear people's experience first as these pigments are expensive and hard to get from where I now live in central Chile (by way of Boulder, Colorado). My main ceramic medium is porcelain, and I prefer to fire to cone 11/12 for translucency. However, I am concerned about burn out in the colors when using pure pigments and am happy to try cone 6 to maintain color. I will also test on terra cotta and stoneware. I am most interested in painting raw porcelain with the stains and/or engobes and doing a single firing, but I'm wide open. I am a beginner, really, with lofty aspirations. I love the work of Michelle Summer and am looking for a similar effect. I'm I right that the running in the work is only achievable with the clear glaze on top? Is she using underglaze, do you think? http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-mTkhN5hewWU/T4m5nVRXpWI/AAAAAAAAAbQ/jNHD6-jMdjw/s1600/DSCN2916.JPG I have seen this "bleeding" color under clear glaze in a lot of Japanese work lately. Am I correct that this is engobe + clear glaze? So, a couple of questions in this one. I appreciate any info you can share! Direct experience, links, anything. Warmly, Heather

    Hakame

    I was experimenting with some Hakame and made a brush from grass broom bristles which seems to be fine as far as the tool is concerned (the synthetic broom bristles might be an interesting alternative too as you could space them out and create a "comb"). The issue that I ran into is that instead of doing it with slip I am doing it with glaze. It turned out pretty interesting but I'm not getting the flow that I want which is in the second photo. Any tips on getting that type of flow? The color pallate that I"m working with is exactly what I want and using another slip I might consider eventually but I'm trying to stick with working with minimal amount of variables at this time.
